that supports an intrinsic evil. >> a majority of catholics voted for barack obama. even as his administration forces religious institutions to provide health insurance plans to provide birth control coverage putting them on a potential collision course with the president. >> the only thing we're certainly prepared to do is not give in. >> debut their support of same- sex marriages the opportunity to retool their message. >> because we're supposed to be good teachers, we're constantly trying to think how we can be more effective and credible in the way we present their teachings. >> the threats include mandated health care coverage, providing contraceptives and abortion inducing drugs. but there are those who have revoked licenses of those who refuse to place couples with same-sex couples. they have denied student organizations that is to a group who believes in abstinence. new york city has barred small churches from renting public school on weekends. >> if we abandon the dignity of the human person, how are we going to make any kind of critique about what is good or bad, right or wrong, heal
for the second term of the obama administration. it will not be easy. we all know that. this is not a slam dunk. it depends on dynamics within the republican party. there's a lot of opposition and resistance to that. we have to watch it closely. clearly, there seems to be more space and more of an opportunity to do something serious on this issue which we eluded to in the report then before. the second issue, cuba, it's also striking that i think president obama won almost half the cuban vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70 # ,000 votes, and which, i think, reveals that the politics within the community may be changing significantly. again, this probably shouldn't have come as a great surprise or shock to those following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement and opening from the obama -- with cuba from the obama administration's point of view, i think, there's been important steps that were made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans making travel more flexi
mitchell who was the u.s. envoy during the obama administration who tried to get israeli/palestinian peace talks off the ground. that didn't happen. what he told us earlier in the day, listen to this. >> what's happened in the past is when the damage gets so great, one side or the other, pulls back and stops. or when the possibility of a much wider conflict emerges, people tend to stop. i think the probleis that you just keep the cycle going unless you address ro causes. anat th is getting the parties into negotiations to try to resolve the underlying conflict. >> all right. what do you think? you agree with him? >> well, there are some palestinians that are willing to talk. but not to hamas. the hamas believe in their charters the destruction of israel. and they will use the people that do want to speak from the palestinians to get any accomplishment they can and use their terror and their viciousness to try and wipe us off the map. these are not people you can speak to. unfortunately, they're using force and try to achieve accomplishments through force. and these people have to be very,
, larry, that was at 6600 in march. 2009 but doubled to 13,000 under the obama administration? >> well, it was until he got re-elected. >> yeah. >> people think he's turning against them. >> i remember hearing the same argument from you in march of 2009 when the stock market was at its low, and you said that the obama administration policies were going to kill the stock market. and instead, it doubled. so people invested and made a ton of money. the reality, larry, is that elections have consequences. the election is over. the republicans lost. it's time to get over it and move on. that means we have to come together and create some sort of compromise. but it doesn't mean the republicans get their way and they don't move it all to the left. there has to be some movement to the center on both sides. the president's already indicated that in terms of spending cuts, which he said repeatedly. and what the democrats -- >> i never heard spending cuts. i never heard anything about spending cuts. he never heard -- >> he may not have said it today but there were references. >> like i said, you
singled out the obama administration for what he calls its indifference. >> we have to go back and re-examine the diplomating setting, if you will. people will be pushed to say we can't afford to ignore this region. we can't afford to ignore this conflict because we look back on the last four years and the indifference, if you will, of the obama administration to what is happening on the west bank and gaza. and i think there will be pressure. there will be pressure from egypt, from turka, pressure from qatar, the three countries that are most sympathetic to hamas. pressure to produce some kind of settlement. >> discussing the u.s. response to the israeli-palestinian crisis. if izrail launches a ground attack in gaza, experts say the battle could be as bloody as the 2008 invasion that killed 1400 palestinians or worse. since then, hamas has gotten better weapons and better trained its foot soldiers as well. brian todd explains what a ground war in gaza might look like. >> reporter: a precision strike from the air killing the chief of hamas' military wing, but it appears israel is getti
lawmakers are trying to figure out what the obama administration knew about the deadly attack on bengauze where i. cmn's state of the union host candy crowley is live in washington. candy, good morning. what are lawmakers expecting in this investigation? >> well, you know, what's interesting is this investigation -- and there are many of them going on, not just on capitol hill. you know, there's an outside one as well. has to do with the run-up to what happened in benghazi. was more security asked for by the ambassador himself prior to this horrific event in benghazi? were they aware of any kind of increased security because it was 9/11? then there was the attack itself. what the heck happened? how was it that we lost four americans in that attack that went on for hours and hours? why didn't help come? there's many questions. then there's the aftermath, and that is, wait a second, when did the administration know it was not about a videotape, it was not about a riot outside the benghazi consulate? it was, in fact, a terrorist attack. was it a planned terrorist attack? who were the terrori
. conservatives are deshed to make it into a full-blown obama administration scandal. it involving his successor in afghanistan, marine corps general john allen. they both have kexzs to jill kelly who does volunteer work with military families. kelley alerted a friend of hers at the fbi after receiving harassing e-mails. them call from paul broadwell, petraeus's biographer. they admitted to having an fair. that affair led to hez rez mags. they discovered potentially inappropriate communications between jill kelley of am tm pa and general allen. they reviewed 30,000 pages of documents including e-mails over the course of two years, but found no wrongdoing by general allen. the fbi turned it over to the pentagon, and the pentagon has ordered its own investigation. the married general allen denies an improper relationship with kelley. he's currently president obama's choice for supreme allied commander of nato forces in europe. that nomination is on hold. as nbc news reports the president learned of the problems on friday, the same day he accepted petraeus's resignation. that hasn't stopped the con

, the obama administration will not define exactly what happened. the press has been largely negligent in pursuing the story. now the testimony is under oath, so it's serious. there are two ways this thing could go. first, into a watergate type spectacle with cover-ups and goh gus statements to the american people, or second. >> it could be a big nothing. a human error that spiraled out of control. the problem is compounded by the president's refusal to define anything. he continues to say there is an investigation, so he can't even give us basic facts like when prosecute you told, mr. president, about the attack in benghazi? an answer to that question cannot possibly impact any investigation, nevertheless, mr. obama refuses to provide it. that raised all kinds of conspiraciy theories and now you have the petraeus situation added to the mix. at a press conference today, reporter asked senator john mccain if the fact that general petraeus' mistress kept secret documents in her possession was it more serious than the entire libyan debauchle? >> well, i say with great respect, that's one

supreme allied commander. >> water the implications of this for the obama administration -- what are the implications? >> i think it is very bad. the fbi investigation about petraeus and this affair that was going on for months, and the white house is saying they learned about this a couple of days ago, last wednesday. do you think the majority of american people believe that? i do not think so. obama will give tomorrow his first press conference after the election, and he would like to focus on the economy, but i think the majority of the journalists will just as more about petraeus and about general allen. the cia had eight directors in the past seven years, and it is bad for the cia, bad for the military, and bad for president obama. >> thanks for that. >> in germany, greenpeace is calling for a fresh start in the search for a long term dump for nuclear waste. >> the environmental group says a new commission should be set up to consider a range of possible sites with maximum input from the public. it says that after years of controversy, the government should give up on the ol

the second most pressing issue and that is jobs, employment. what should the second obama administration do to encourage job creation? marty? >> i think getting the uncertainty of higher taxes off the table would help. i think corporate tax reform would also help. president obama has said that he would bring the top rate down. the corporate rate down from 35 to 28%. that would get us in line with the the major european economy. that would be a good thing. if we took the next step and went to the international tax rules that every other industrial country has, so-called territorial system, that would encourage american firms to bring back some of the literally more than a trillion dollars of funds that they have sitting outside of the u.s. economy. >> what about the health care legislation? now that president obama has been re-elected, we know obama care, affordable care act is not going anywhere. after all of this debating about it. what impact do you think that will have? >> let me underscore my agreement with marty. we worked together on corporate tax reform in president's economic recove

, violence, and corruption in many countries in latin america. i think obama administration will probably say it has done some things to move forward on this issue, talking about shared responsibility, but i think despite some changes in the discourse, the essential elements of the policy have been pretty unchanged until now. again, this does open some -- possibilities. the reaction in mexico will be particularly critical to see where this goes. president-elect peña nieto will be here at the end of this month. i'm sure this has got a lot of attention in the mexican press and among mexican commentators and i'm sure this will be raised and discussed with president obama when peña nieto is here. it is had complications to the u.s. policy in latin america. there is an opportunity that perhaps is greater than when we wrote the report in april to make some progress on these issues. there is more space, little more pressure. at the same time, it is probably smart to keep expectations in check and under control. president obama, i think, has been shown to be pretty cautious when it comes to foreign
scandals, events and even acts of war that the obama administration worked to keep secret until after the election. on friday, three days after, we learn that david petraeus, the head of the cia, was stepping down because of an extramarital affair. first i want to say that david petraeus is one of a greatest genuine hero. he is the first general in generations to turn around a war america was losing to iraq and 2006 and 2007 and he helped divert defeat. and for general petraeus to do what he did when he was director of the central intelligence agency, it was triple problem inmatic and opened him up to blackmail. for people who say it's a private matter, you are simply wrong. you can't have the cia director of america involved in a fair. once the affair was revealed, there was not a question in petraeus's mind that he needed to resign. but the story doesn't simply end there. now the white house claims that the president first received information about the affair on thursday. but a source close to journallest ron kessler, who will join me in a few minutes, says that's highly unlikely,

economics, but he is now on his second tour of duty in the obama administration. at the beginning of the obama administration, he served at treasury, and then went back to princeton and was the backed by the president to become the chairman of the council of economic advisors, a position he assumed a year ago. we're pleased to have you here, and everybody wants to know one thing. are we going to fall off the fiscal cliff or not? what is the answer? >> the answer is that we should not, because these are solvable problems. we are working away at them. the president yesterday met with business leaders to discuss end-of-the-year issues, the fiscal cliff, also areas of concern to business. the day before he met with labor leaders, other leaders, and the president's approach has been clear all along. he is looking for a balanced solution, a solution that is balanced in terms of raising additional revenue, raised from the most fortunate top 2% income earners in the u.s., also reduces spending, so i think the president's position has been clear. these are solvable problems. we have them w

to get worse? >> tom, i think the obama administration has been rightfully supporting israel because israel has a right to defend itself, any country would. but i think the united states is going to want to work with egypt, with turkey and ka trkqa try to convince the leadership to stop this very provocative and hardy shelling of rocketing the cities. when hamas is targeting both tel aviv and israel, this is a new phase of war between a long-running war between them. israel is going to react to that. i think you'll see a very intense demonstration between them to cease and decysist. >> gaza is not a big area. at some point they have to run out of pockets to some degree, don't they? >> yeah, but that's a big risk. so the big driver of the israeli operation right now is the long-range rockets that were allegedly supplied by iran and which hamas has been using to target major urban centers in israel like tel aviv, like jerusalem. tel aviv has been the red line for israel, and as long as hamas has been in possession of these rockets and can maintain that threat against israeli population

on the u.s. mission in benghazi and the obama administration's response. well, now that the senate and house intelligence members have heard from former cia director david petraeus, albeit behind closed doors, we know this indisputable fact. the cia knew the attack was planned and launched by terrorists affiliated with al qaeda. that's according to petraeus' testimony on friday. but two months after the attack, so many questions still remain. the answers to which have a lot of implications to u.s. security. which is why we want to bring in congressman adam schiff who serves on the house intelligence committee. congressman schiff, thank you for joining us. >> it's a pleasure. >> you were there for petraeus' testimony. what did we learn from that hearing? what did you learn from that hearing? >> well, we learned a few things. his testimony and the testimony of the prior day of the acting director set out a minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour chronology of what happened at our diplomatic post. we also learned from general petraeus that in the putting together of these talking points, there
on the destruction of israel. why? because politics takes precedence under the obama administration and both post election surprises all come on the heels of benghazi. remember, when the president had his way that truth would still be hidden as well and we would all still be blaming the death of four americans on a youtube movie trailer. it's time to lift the veil of secrecy. joining me now to do just that is ronald kessler. and utah congressman jason chaffetz is with us. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> what do you make of it? >> this administration is withholding information from the american people and they are engaged in a concerted effort to mislead the world and mislead the american people. >> to what extent do you think this was connect today benghazi? why now? he was supposed to testify this week. >> it's so suspicious. it's not a coincidence. he is probably the one that knows most about what happened or didn't happen in benghazi. a lot of senators don't believe he was telling the truth before. this begs more questions than it answers. >> ron kessler, you knew october 10th that thi
have been murdered in libya and the obama administration is still dragging its feet two months later still not telling the story. former director david petraeus knows about benghazi, two weeks ago he was in lib qa ya to conduct his own investigation of september 11th attack. should he be forced to testify before congress? we spoke to lindsay graham a short time ago. >> senator, nice to see you. congressman, they have written a letter tha saying a select committee to what happened in benz? >> john mccain and myself we will introduce a resolution asking the majority leader, mitch mcconnell to do a select committee. why do you need one? the state department is under the foreign operations committee foreign relations committee oversight. department of defense is under armed service. if you have three different committees interviewing people separately we won't know what one group will significant sailing. so we should form a committee over department of defense, department of the state and the c.i.a. and ask questions and have a professional approach to this. i think congress would be ma

think the big issue we are going to face of the next four years of the obama administration, and you are seeing this play out to some degree even this weekend as you watch what is unfolding in gaza, as you see the continuing argument over benghazi, as you see the continuing debate about the degree to which the united states needs to intervene more fully in syria, if you see a big argument about whether or not the united states needs to be centrally involved in issues in which its interests may not be completely vital, and that is a big change for the world. that may be the normal. >> okay. i realize i forgot something. halifax is nothing if not cutting edge, and so you are all encouraged to add tweet or have your aides tweet whatever insights you may find. halifax 2012. and we are going to have a force multiplier in the social media realm of the great insights that are here. so you should be the first one who has actually tweeted. >> seen from europe, the new normal that i can see does not look so dramatically different from the old normal. it has become popular in europe to speak of
through a presidential election. president obama was re-elected. and the obama administration had a number of i think foreign policy and counterterrorism successes during the first administration. obviously osama bin laden was killed in the special operations raid. president obama's oversea drawdown of tops in iraq as well as afghanistan. and yet i think one of the most lasting legacies from the first term of the obama administration may well be what u.s. officials termed the yemen model. this is sort of how it is that the u.s. is going to fight these wars, these wars against nonstate actors, wars against groups like al qaeda in the future. and in many ways i think that during the first term of the obama presidency yemen has become the laboratory for this sort of approach. yemen is now a place over the past four years where the u.s. has tested out different ways in which it could fight al qaeda. so we've seen a number of different approaches and we've seen the obama administration move away from what the bush administration attempted to do with sort of large ground scale invasions of iraq
about transparency in the obama administration as reports surface that epa administrator lisa jackson is one of several officials under congressional investigation for allegedly using a private e-mail and an alias, and the motivation is allegedly so that she could skirt the rules and hide controversial correspondence from the public, the press and even internal epa inspectors. and she's not the only one being implicated. joining me now with more, brad blakeman and marjorie clifton, former consultant to the obama campaign and principal at clifton consulting. okay, so this house committee has launched an investigation into whether ms. jackson is trying to get around public disclosure laws. because if you talk about it for the most part as a government employee, we get to see it, you know? we get to file a freedom of information request, and you have to give it over to us. that's why if you're thinking about e-mailing president obama anytime soon, know that it's all going to be a matter of public record and retrievable for the ages. [laughter] so ms. jackson, according to this house comm
the obama administration from defending doma to arguing that it's unconstitutional has recommended to the court that it grants cert in the winter case. there are two cases. a lot of petitions have been filed. there only two cases in which there has been a court of appeals opinion. the windsor case in the second circuit and the gill case from the first circuit. i think the lindsay cases the more likely one in part because the justice department has recommended that. so i really think that case is going to be -- that case is going to be heard. i would be extremely surprised if the supreme court does not grant review in that case and we do not get a decision on the constitutionality of doma. the other cases, the famous case which chad knows a little bit about is the prop 8 case from california. that is where, from a ninth circuit appeals decision, which by a 2-1 vote, struck down prop 8 from the supreme court, the impact will be to affirm the ninth circuit opinion and will be unconstitutional. i think it's a big question with what the court is going to do. there are demons made to the
